14 Working with you for Better Health Client Quotes ‘Because we have learnt it together we do it together’. 19 year old dad ‘If it wasn’t for my nurse I really don’t know where I’d be, never mind my baby.’ ‘ Gives information then you can make your own decisions, you don’t feel forced e.g. breastfeeding and giving up smoking which for me means I am more likely to do it as I always do the opposite to what I’m told.’ ‘My nurse is the first person that has made me feel good about myself in as long as I can remember – I feel like I can take on the world now.’ ‘When I was having mine, it was about you or the baby, and that is it but this way we are all involved which makes us a stronger family and when the nurse isn’t around I can follow the same approach as it has changed from when I did it so I probably would have been giving her different advice.’ Grandma.
